Protecting pets from hot vehicles

Each year the Winnipeg Humane Society receives hundreds of calls about animals locked in vehicles. These unattended pets are at risk of heat stroke, brain damage and even death.

Payworks, the official Emergency Response sponsor of Paws in Motion, supports their hard work. There’s no safe temperature to leave a pet inside a vehicle, even if its parked in the shade and the windows are partially down. This is because our pets do … Continued

Meatless Monday: Vegan Steak

Blog by: Angela Tucker Photo by: itdoesnttastelikechicken.com It is BBQ season, which is pretty well known for heavy, meaty dishes. And with so many people making room for more plant-based foods in their lives, why not make more room for plant-based foods on the BBQ grill? When I came across the idea of making vegan steaks I felt a little intimidated, and I thought that this would be a difficult thing to replicate in the kitchen using plant-based ingredients. However, once I saw how easy it was in this video by the one and only Happy Pear guys I decided to … Continued

What is the WHS “Grading System”?

Dear WHS Friends, Some of you may have heard that the WHS has implemented a “scoring system” for animals coming in. There has been some questions about what it is, so we feel it’s important to clarify what it is, and why we are doing it. The name of this initiative (“scoring”) and the fact that pets are given a score have caused concerns about WHS using this as a way to euthanize more animals based on a cold, numbers-based system. In fact, the opposite is true. We are committed to save more animals than ever before. I will try to … Continued

James doesn’t need eyes to see your love

James was found as a stray puppy who suffered severe head trauma, damaging both of his eyes. His left eye was hanging out of its socket when he arrived at the WHS, and it had been for some time. It couldn’t be saved. James’ mouth was FULL of broken baby teeth from the injury, making it too painful for him to open his mouth. Dr. Bowen, WHS Director of Veterinary Services, immediately removed James’ left eye and broken baby teeth to relieve him of pain. James undoubtedly pushed through extreme pain to survive on his own, all alone at 3-months-old. … Continued
